Somersworth, NH (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
The Grand Opening celebration of Goodwill NNE’s new Somersworth store and donation center is scheduled for Saturday, November 15 at 9:00am. The new Somersworth store and donation center is located at 450 High Street.
Shoppers and employees will enjoy a new 15,000 square foot building that features a convenient donation drive up and several environmentally-friendly aspects, including an energy-efficient HVAC system, polished concrete floors (which eliminates the need for harsh chemical cleaners), LED lights and large windows to reduce electricity use. The new store will replace the current 13,000 square foot store in Dover, three miles from the new location.
The new store features a wide variety of donated goods – clothing, jewelry, books, household items and furniture, as well as a limited selection of new items to create a complete shopping experience.
The new store in Somersworth also features 100% Neighbor-Made products: craft and gift items manufactured in the northeast. This initiative helps regional entrepreneurs grow their businesses – and ultimately their workforce. For more information on 100% Neighbor-Made products, visit http://www.goodwillnne.org/neighbor-made.
Customers will also have the opportunity to learn about Goodwill’s programs in New Hampshire that help people find jobs, lead more stable lives and nurture sustainable communities.
The new Somersworth Goodwill store and donation center will employ 52 full and part time staff members. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 am – 9 pm; Sunday from 9 am – 7pm.
